Bray-born superstar Hozier is honoured to perform at the Californian music festival in April.

The unassuming man with the stellar talent will be performing alongside some of the biggest names in music, including AC/DC, Florence and the Machine, Ryan Adams and Drake.

The music festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California over two weekends in April.

Since its inception in 1999, the annual event has attracted worldwide attention thanks to the picture-perfect surroundings of the Coachella Valley and the glamorous celebrities that attend in their droves.

Also scheduled to perform this year are the likes of Interpol, David Guetta, Azealia Banks, Axwell, Kasabian, St Vincent and the “godfather of dance music” Pete Tong.

Tickets for the music festival go on sale today at 12pm from www.coachella.com

Hozier, real name Andrew Byrne, has been catapulted to world wide fame since the YouTube release of his debut track ‘Take Me To Church’.

The artist (24) who hails from Co Wicklow, describes himself as a “singer-songwriter and producer, influenced by folk blues, soul, and gospel.”

The Grammy nominated star was recently profiled on Forbes.com as one of their “30 under 30”.

He told the outlet that he knew he wanted to be a musician from the age of 12, and “determination” is the attribute that has earned him such stratospheric success.

“In 2015, I will continue touring, studio time will be scarce but would love the possibility of finishing/releasing more music,” he stated.

Hozier will appear on The Graham Norton Show on BBC this Friday evening.
